Andy Hayleck at Instrument-Builder Pinazola Laboratory // Workshop for Music and Acoustics
unlimited liability - Norderstr. 71, Hamburg
October 14, 2017
7:00 PM to midnight
Outside the window bees buzzed (2017)
'Basically, I found myself repeatedly drawn to the large window in the room where Pinazola is installed; the view of the destruction outside while inside it is a hive of creativity. I decided to extend a long, tensioned wire from inside the room to a place in the courtyard, towards the disturbed earth outside. Each end of the wire is attached to an amplifier that passes the alternating current of an audio signal. The current generates a varying magnetic field, which interacts with an external, fixed magnet to cause the wire to vibrate. The wire vibrates without being touched, causing the harmonics of the wire to rise into our range of hearing. Inspired by the input signal, they vibrate as each feels appropriate.'
In addition, guests were be able to strum and otherwise activate the fifteen wires already strung between the walls of the room.Outside the window bees buzzed is an experiment that makes use of the sound-laboratory in keeping with the Pinazola concept: a test set-up wich interacts with the spatial context and its sound characterisitcs. The sound-laboratory is thereby expanded in its potential for play and sound.'
The frame of this performance was the 'residency' of Instrument-Atelier Pinazola // Workshop for Music and Acoustics in the unlimited liability (Hamburg) shop / anti-gallery. Len Pappe's installation and use of four rooms is in continuous transformance. It includes enharmonic inversions, the construction of instruments, and guests such as documented here.
